Mark Twain's Speeches


Published September 25, 2013


LibriVox recording of Mark Twain's Speeches by Mark Twain.
Read in English by John Greenman

Spanning the time between 1872 and the year before he died, this collection of after-dinner speeches, random thoughts to "the press", etc. clearly documents, once again, the truly eclectic mind of Samuel Clemens. It also demonstrates how he dealt with adulation, compliments and notoriety...head on! This collection is a treasure-trove of Twain sayings, witticisms and pronouncements on a huge galaxy of issues and concerns in his life. (Summary by John Greenman)

Subject: Sounds like Twain to me.
Excellent reading, and interesting speeches!

Subject: John Greenman is Mark Twain!
John Greenman is Mark Twain! He sounds more like Mark Twain than Mark Twain did! There are no existing recordings of Twain's voice. The closest thing we have is a recording by a contemporary Mark Twain imitator, William Gillette.
